My Breast Cancer Support
The Cancer Care Center is one of six cancer treatment organizations designated for support services for breast cancer patients. They provide journals, blankets, gift cards/certificates, pashmina scarves and more. They also provide support tools to help patients find a comfortable balance between life and treatment – to lend a hand, to ease discomfort, and to help them find strength and encouragement as they embrace their new normal.
